SYDNEY CARNIVAL - APRIL 2012

Following the conclusion of the Spring Racing Carnival the racing spotlight firmly turns to Sydney as anticipation builds in the lead up to the 2012 Sydney Carnival featuring the AAMI Golden Slipper to be held on the first Saturday in April.

As the sporting, entertainment, fashion and social hub of Sydney's autumn, the Sydney Carnival promises an unrivalled racing program featuring time-honoured racing classics across four fabulous Saturdays - AAMI Golden Slipper Day, David Jones Australian Derby Day, Doncaster Day and Schweppes Sydney Cup Day.

Tickets go on sale for all four events via - http://www.thesydneycarnival.com.au - tomorrow, Tuesday 25 October.  General admission tickets are $A40 however 'early-bird' purchasers receive a $10 discount per ticket.

Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V'landys, said Sydney Carnival is a stand out event for its racing and entertainment and encourages everyone to come and experience the thrill of it.

"Sydney Carnival is a highly prestigious event held in one of the world's greatest locations. It is at the heart of the thoroughbred racing and NSW events calendars and April is a wonderful time of year in Sydney to enjoy it," said Mr. V'landys.

"The Carnival provides a truly thrilling experience on and off the track whether your focus is the running of world's richest race for two-year-olds on AAMI Golden Slipper Day or the glamour of the 151st AJC Australian Derby."

"Sydney Carnival is well supported locally and through our partnership with Destination NSW we're looking forward to welcoming a growing interstate and international crowd in 2012 with our flagship event, the AAMI Golden Slipper held on the Easter holiday weekend," he said.

Australian Turf Club CEO Darren Pearce added, "We are looking forward to another fabulous Sydney Carnival in 2012 and our partnership goes from strength to strength. I encourage racegoers to book early, especially for events at Royal Randwick, which will have reduced capacity through the Carnival due to our world class Grandstand redevelopment."

The Sydney Carnival is staged by the Australian Turf Club and has been created through a partnership between Racing NSW, Australian Turf Club, Destination NSW, Inglis and Tabcorp.
